The Young Writers Program is an amazing and empowering organization in Santa Cruz County that offers our youth an opportunity to creatively explore writing outside the context of the classroom with the help of volunteer mentors from our community.
To witness the growth, expression and fulfillment in the eyes of these kids is a powerful and moving experience.
We were fortunate to work with the program to produce a short piece showcasing the program and highlighting the difference it is making in our young writers. Please have a look at the amazing work Julia Chiapella has accomplished and the difference that simple "attention" can make in a child's life!
